Listen Up!: A Practical Guide to Listening to Sermons based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Here is a much needed guide to a discipline that most church members never develop or even think they need to. It is a small 31 page guide on how to listen to sermons. Many people presuppose that all we need is to be simply there and stay awake¿ right? Yet the found in the Bible are numerous texts that warn us to consider carefully how we listen. The issue is that much more than we think is involved in truly listening to Bible teaching than just sitting and staring at the preacher.Author Christopher Ash in his small booklet, Listen Up! A Practical Guide to Listening to Sermons gives some simple yet powerful insights on being a healthy listener that hears the voice of God. Also it deals with how to respond to bad sermons that are dull, or inadequate, and even heretical. Additional he provides ideas for assisting in edifying, helping, and encouraging our Bible teachers to give sermons that will spur on growth as Christians.He further answers questions like where does the authority of a Bible teacher come from. Why is Bible teaching offensive? Why is it important to hear Bible teaching in church? How can we actually enjoy Bible teaching more? You can read this booklet in an single setting an hour. I would encourage you to get a copy and discuss it with four or five friends at your church or on your campus.
A practical and down-to-earth guide to getting the most out of listening to sermons. This little booklet is well presented and written in a friendly manner, and would be useful for anyone who regularly listens to (or for that matter delivers) sermons.
